Facebook Group?

Question... many groups function on FB too... I am also a part of the December group and we started a FB group for us, but there are only 5 members... do you all want to join our group and we can make it the Dec/Jan DDC?

What do you think? If so, I can post a link to the group and you can join... you have to await approval. But, I figure between the two groups we might have one active group!

I would love to! My last DDC did this too for a whole season, and it has been great.

Sent a request to join and what a small world I currently live in Powell and saw that you were from there also. That's pretty neat.

Can we make it a secret group? That's what various other due date FB groups I'm in are. Keeps it a little more secure/private.

It's a closed group, people can find it, have to request approval, and no one can see our posts.
I don't mind making it secret, however.

The only thing about secret is the group, is it won't show up with a link. So it might take inviting them with their email address. Closed will still keep it private, and make it so the link is findable with out having to invite via emails. The nice thing is it can always be changed between closed and secret so that helps

Yeah, I know it's a little bit more work to add people when it's secret, but I don't like random people being able to find and request membership to the group. With closed anyone can find the group, see who's in it, and request to join. With my last DDC we had I think three members who were admins and could add people whenever we had someone who wanted to join.

Link won't work while it's secret, unless you are friends with someone and they add you or get an invite via email. I am helping moderate in the group, if you message me your email address I can send an invite to join to your email and it will work that way. Hope that helps

Link hasn't changed for us but has for others, so while it's secret for anyone that is not a member the link will not show up as visible. So the only way to add is via email invites, or befriending and manually adding.
What my Spring 2011 DDC did was keep it on "closed mode" and added people as they were recognizable. So the link was visible to those it was shared with to easily add them... Then after most of us were added it was switched over to secret. So a little more work to add new people in secret mode but it can be done, just requires email or friend requests. hope that helps better explain it...

yes people can still be added, but it requires a friend request or an email address. The nice part of closed is people can recognize the link and request to join. That feature goes away with secret... but on the other hand in secret it helps eliminate scammers or random people from joining. So pros and cons. But understand what you mean, it's nice to keep the group on the secure side...

I'm going to change it back to closed for the next month. It's just too much of a hassle to try to track people down. Plus, people can't see you're posts... Then after we can change it to secret after people have had a chance to join... Cool?
